I need to check that out. Ive worked on a few hondas and usually there is a bolt securing it near the top and a tab at the bottom. Once you undo the bolt its tilts towards the engine and lifts up out of the engine compartment.

Soda bottles make a great aftermarket solution to ruptured, leaking or missing over flow bottles.

This is the shop manual for the cooling system, but it does not show how to change out the reservoir tank. If you look at the "radiator removal" section, it shows a number of steps prior to the tank removal itself. Good luck

Mines is a 16 and looks like a 10 mm bolt holds it on top of the radiator and it slips between the battery and radiator to a spot below like on the hondas I referenced.
